Boko Haram/ISWAP execute Christian hostage in Borno with 8 year-old Protege
ISIS’s Amaq news agency has released a video showing a yet-to be identified 8-year-old who is a member of a Boko Haram faction called the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), executing a Christian hostage in Borno State.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the news agency released the video after the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Chairman in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Rev Lawan Andimi was executed by another faction of Boko Haram.
Inside the horrific and heartbreaking video, the boy can be heard saying “We won’t stop until we take revenge for all the blood that was spilled”.
Reacting to the video, the Director of SITE Intelligence Group, Rita Katz disclosed that it is not just another piece to ISIS’ honed-in targeting of Christians of recent years, but also a throwback to its older propaganda from Iraq and Syria of brainwashed children carrying grisly executions.
SITE Intelligence Group is an organisation which tracks the activities of jihadist groups,
